DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
A Bondservant For Jesus Christ
Paul introduced himself to the Roman believers as a bondservant of Jesus Christ. This expressed the way Paul viewed his relationship with Jesus. A servant is one who is entirely the property of his master. By this Paul meant that he was not his own any longer, and that his life and powers belonged to his heavenly owner. This paints the picture of absolute surrenderedness to the will of Christ. What is your relationship with Christ? Who is in control of your life, your time, money, skill, etc? Is Christ really your Master? How surrendered are you to His will? A servant is expected to be obedient to his master, how obedient are you?
Point of Emphasis: If you are Jesus’ servant, then be like Jesus (Matt. 10:25).
Prayer Point: Jesus, be my Master and My Lord in all areas of life.
